Non Resident Moose Hunting in BC
Hello. I live in the Seattle area. Is it legal for a US citizen to hunt moose in B.C. without the use of a guide service?
I would love to hunt in Canada (great country, great people, and WAY closer than Alaska), but to save money I would like to do it myself.
Any info would be great.
Thanks for asking. Unfortunately, non-residents of Canada cannot hunt moose or any other big game species without a licensed guide.
Quoted from the BC Hunting & Trapping Regulation Synopsis
"Non-residents of British Columbia hunting big game must be accompanied by either a licensed BC guide or a resident who holds a Permit to Accompany."
"A non-resident who is not a resident of Canada and is not a Canadian citizen, may also be eligible under the Permit to Accompany providing they qualify under one of the required relationship categories."

All the best,
